Over the course of two semesters, I was assigned various cases to complete. Each case examines issues in financial accounting. The subject of each case varies. By working through each case, I was able to apply my accounting knowledge learned in other classes. I was required to create financial statements, research the FASB codifications, and think critically about accounting practices. Additionally, I worked in small groups with my peers to research and complete each case. To complete each case, our group used our combined accounting knowledge, texts from other classes, and the FASB codification to work through the given questions. Combined, these cases provide a broad overview of essential accounting concepts. Throughout this process, I improved my critical thinking skills and Excel proficiency. The skills and knowledge gained in this course assisted me in my courses and internship. In turn, I am more prepared for my future career.
